Dear Diary . . . {Chapter Three}

After soaking up the Adler sun yesterday, Ashley and I wandered the other zillion some-odd aisles at the Contemporary Show and decided Wall Paper was the name of the game this year . . . I am a huge fan of unique all paper !  With every turn we came across something amazing.

Take a look at what caught my eye first . . 


This is Flat Vernacular Wall Papers
and the pattern is "Full Bloom."  It's hand printed using Silver and/or Gold Mylar paper, it's impossible to photography to truly see all the eye catching shimmer and reflection, but trust me it's amazing !

A new debut to the May show and shown here in all it's yumminess !!!




I am in love with their unique creativity . . . take a look at this pattern . . . look closely






Brian Kaspr and fianc√© Payton Cosell Turner's brain child . . . their amazing papers were featured in the last September's  issue of Elle Decor (remember this !!!) Yes . .  all stickers.


How fun is that !
Brooklyn based design company who clearly takes great time and care with each creation !






Next stop . . . Ella Doran
Based in the UK, former winner of The British Design Awards and featured in the French Elle Decor.  Had the pleasure of meeting textile designer Ella Doran (that's her behind her pillow!).  Love, love the "Stacks and Stripes" wall paper.  Line your family room with stripes - but even cooler that those stripes are album covers !  Paper is digitally printed for the vinyl lovers !
Other products in her line up include cushions, mugs, paper products, place mats and coasters, umbrellas and the coolest roller shades and window panels



This pattern is called "Geo" (and was with winner of the Grand Design Award)


and another favorite "Bugs and Butterflies"







We kept going and came across another UK Exhibitor Tracey Kendal Wall Paper. With her impressive client list including, Anthropologie, the Four Seasons, Kelly Hoppen, Neimans, the Rug Company and Soho House, Tracey has won the ICFF Editors Award in 02 and 09 and Best "On Trend" Product in 2010.

Take a look at my favorite - I actually did a  double take . . .


Isn't it the coolest !


Love the big flatware . . . 



Words . . 


Simple and organic . . 

 And wow . . .





Truly outside the box.




Aimee Wilder
Native New Yorker, Aimee was busy in her booth chatting, sampling and being genuine.  I loved her laid back and fun approach to design.  With childhood exposure to the fashion and textiles industries she developed a foundation at an early age.  Working as a freehand graphic designer after school and later as an in-house designer for firms including Dwell and Martha Stewart Living, her style is clean and well developed.  She brands herself well and her designs are very recognizable with the name !  She draws inspiration from contemporary graphic art and influenced by typography, logo design, rock poster art and urban toy design . . .

Love the subtle colors, but strong patterns !

Fabric by the yard is also available !!!




Rollout Design x MFG Co.
This Toronto based studio juggles Branding, Art Installations and Graphic Design
Rollout projects are often bold and graphic in nature.  I fell in love with the NYC street map paper (wonder why)


Co-Founders Anita Modha, and Jonathan Nodrick 


While checking out their site, I can across these other great papers I love !


Love these patterns and check out the close up - pretty cool




Yeah, got a little wall paper carried away. . . couldn't help it

Stay tuned for other Show gems !  Putting the Diary away for the day . . . but like a good book (or tons and tons of NYC pictures) . .  I can't wait to pick back up tomorrow.  Night.
